非洲或将成为全球区块链发展领军力量

当我们想到非洲时,我们的脑海中常常充斥着饥饿、疾病、自然灾害甚至内战的画面。我们通常不会考虑其人民的力量或他们摆脱贫困的能力。然而,尽管看起来非洲并不是最应该引领世界进入第四次工业革命的的地方,但非洲的区块链产业发展速度却是全球最快的。

那么,区块链技术可以为非洲大陆做些什么?它又是如何弥补贫富差距的呢?

改良农业模式

GMEX子公司Block Commodities正在创建一个基于代币的生态系统,使撒哈拉以南的农民能够在其剩余的农作物上进行获利,并将它们用于更广泛的生态系统。该公司旨在使用OST技术构建的FACES(非洲投放商品生态系统)获得补偿,该公司允许品牌代币建立在开放、可扩展及密码可被审计的侧区块链上。

这意味着非洲农民将不再需要让剩余的农作物浪费,因为他们可以对这些标的进行交易或向其他农民指出他们需要的东西。他们也能够直接进行互相的处理,以切断中间商,并确保透明交易。

撒哈拉以南的非洲农民通过实施充足的供应和分配系统来弥补非洲农业和采掘业损失的这一价值,从而可以提高生产力,并确保农作物 的更高利润。

接受教育和医疗

利用OST的技术,Block Commodities将建立由多个电子商务合作伙伴组成的生态系统。它不仅包括本地供应商和服务提供商,还包括重要的医疗和教育机构。

随后,可以在人们需要的时候为接受重要服务的人们兑换代币,为大批贫困人口提供所需的护理,帮助防止疾病的传播并提高人口预期寿命。

取代银行

借助移动技术和加密货币,银行不需要管理交易,而且人们可以直接获得销售汇报,非洲已经证明了其采用新技术的敏锐性,其移动支付率位居世界前列。

OST首席执行官Jason Goldberg说:“我相信非洲很有可能很快引领互相信任,甚至无银行经济的趋势。区块链的曙光将使撒哈拉以南非洲国家,特别是其各大型农业社区,能够通过在家用电器和医疗保健等商品和过剩农作物上赚取利润,并交换加密货币。”

When we think about Africa, our minds often flood with images of hunger, hardship, disease, natural disasters, and maybe even civil war. We don’t often consider the strength of its people or their ability to lift themselves out of poverty. So while it may not seem like the most natural place to lead the world into the fourth industrial revolution, Africa could actually see the fastest overall rate of blockchain growth.

So, what can blockchain tech do for this struggling continent, and how can its adoption bridge the divide between rich and poor?

FIXING THE AGRICULTURAL MODEL

Block Commodities, a joint-venture with FinComEco (a subsidiary of GMEX), is creating a token-based ecosystem that will enable sub-Saharan farmers to make profits on their surplus crops and use them in the wider ecosystem. They will be compensated in FACES tokens (Feed Africa Commodities Eco-System) built using technology from OST, a company that allows branded tokens to be built upon open, scalable and cryptographically auditable side blockchains.

This means that African farmers will no longer have to allow surplus crops to go to waste, as they will be able to trade them or request what they need from other farmers. They will also be able to deal with each other directly, cutting out the middlemen and ensuring transparent transactions.

In reclaiming this value lost in African agricultural and extractive industries by implementing a sufficient supply and distribution system, sub-Saharan African farmers can increase productivity and secure higher profits for their crops. They can also become significant agricultural producers on a global stage.

GRANTING ACCESS TO EDUCATION AND MEDICINE

Using OST’s technology, Block Commodities will build an ecosystem comprised of multiple e-commerce partners. It will feature not only local vendors and service providers but key medical and educational institutions as well.

FACES tokens can then be redeemed for vital services when people need them, providing masses of underprivileged individuals with the care they need to help prevent the spread of disease and improve life expectancy, which is just 53.05 in Nigeria.

REPLACING BANKS

With mobile technology and cryptocurrency, there is no need for banks to manage transactions, and people can be rewarded directly for their sales. Africa has certainly proven its keenness to adopt new technology, with its rates of mobile payments among the world’s highest.

OST CEO Jason Goldberg says, “I believe there is a good chance Africa will soon lead the trend of trustless, and even bankless, economies. The dawn of Blockchain will enable sub-Saharan countries, and in particular, its farming communities, to exchange cryptocurrencies earned by making profits on surplus crops for goods and services like home appliances and healthcare.”
